WeCrochet reached out and asked if I wanted to try to use their Brava Minis for a design and I was so on board! I am totally a garment gal and working my brain differently to come up with a mini project was really quite fun!!
I came up with a teeny project that uses just 1 Brava Mini if you want a solid colour, OR make 2 with 2 minis and have some contrast!

I prefer to use Soak! The pineapple scent is my favourite.
